Console Launch Exclusive Full Metal Furies Available Now as Xbox Play Anywhere Title

Holy shlamboly, it’s actually happened. Full Metal Furies is coming out... today! To finally give gamers the chance to play a labour of love that we’ve spent nearly four years making is tough to put into words.  There’s a lot of pride getting to this point, and while the journey getting here was far from smooth, in the end, it was totally worth it. We honestly hope you enjoy playing Full Metal Furies. As the game approached release, we unveiled a lot of info about it and received a lot of feedback. One of the most interesting comments were from people who questioned whether Full Metal Furies even qualified as a brawler. It just seemed too unfamiliar to them, and outside what they...

The Cartographer’s Fleet: The Alien Airframes of Inside Out Flying Game InnerSpace

Greetings, Cartographer. It is I, the Archaeologist, your creator, your companion, and fellow explorer of the Inverse. As you look at yourself, your wings and your fuselage, you may very well ask, "Can I be more than this?" The answer is yes, Cartographer. You absolutely can. I have just developed the technology that will allow you to transfer your AI consciousness from your current airframe into another. A brilliant breakthrough, if I say so myself. I'm envious, I admit. I only have the one submarine. Of course, I'll need your help finding the parts to construct these new airframes for you. They can be found scattered across the Inverse, lost relics of technology from the Ancients... Read more: The Cartographer’s Fleet: The Alien Airframes of Inside Out Flying Game InnerSpace

Albert and Otto Small ImageAlbert and Otto Large Image Games

Puzzle Platformer Albert & Otto Available Now on Xbox One

I am super excited to finally see Albert & Otto make it on Xbox One. This game was my first entry into the world of video game development, so the mechanics and puzzles evolved over time rather than being designed from the start by an experienced developer, which I think gives it a unique feel. Originally a filmmaker, I was always fond of telling stories and I continue to be surprised at how similarly powerful the two mediums are when it comes to storytelling. Albert & Otto is a puzzle platformer that is mechanically quite simple: run, jump, shoot, solve puzzles, burn sheep (more on that later), but has a complex and deep underlying story. It takes a lot of inspiration from films... Read more: Puzzle Platformer Albert & Otto Available Now on Xbox One
